General Barrel Info: The barrel on an AR-15 pistol operates through a 'gas impingement' system, where gas is tapped from off the barrel and cycled back through a connected gas system to help the bolt carrier extract a spent cartridge. Pistol length AR-15 barrels come in two gas lengths, Pistol, Carbine, & Mid-Length. AR-15 Pistol barrels can be chambered in a variety of different calibers from rifle to pistol cartridges. Thanks to the modularity of the AR-15 platform, your next pistol will be incredibly easy.
Brand Info: The Engineers at ELD Performance have created a line of high-quality barrels precision machined for reliability and and accuracy at an affordable price! ELD Performance barrels are made in a variety of calibers with the reliability to rival the best.
About This Barrel: This ELD Performance barrel is a great choice for your next AR-15 Pistol build because it is crafted from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel and chambered in 5.56. The nitride finish helps increase its strength making it more resistant to corrosion and also gives this barrel a classic black finish which adds to the overall aesthetic of your build. The length of this barrel is 10.5 inches which makes it perfect for home defense and close quarter battle (CQB).
About the Profile: Medium - Medium Profile barrels are designed to have an even weight distributed from the beginning to the end of the barrel, this results in a rather tubular looking appearance but with identical rigidity and properties to a government profile barrel.
Barrel Classification: Pistol
Length: This Barrel is designated as a pistol length barrel with an overall length of 10.5".
Caliber: 5.56NATO - This barrel is chambered to fire both 5.56 NATO and .223 Remington, the most commonly used round designed for the AR-15 platform.
Material: 4150 CrMoV - Chrome-Moly Vanadium, or simply "CMV", is the official mil-spec gun steel developed by Colt Firearms for the military-issued M16 and M4. It contains the same elements as 4150 steel. It also contains Vanadium. Vanadium significantly increases the strength, hardness, and high-temperature stability of the steel.
Finish: Nitride - Nitriding is a process during manufacturing that diffuses nitrogen into the steel to make a case-hardened surface for improved resistance and strength. A Nitrided barrel typically has a gloss black texture.
Thread Pitch: 1/2x28 - This threading is commonly found on barrels chambered in 5.56, .223, and .224. This will allow the installation of most muzzle devices such as flash hiders, blast cans, and compensators threaded to 1/2x28 threads.
